Experience

I suffered the worst acne I’ve suffered since I was a teenager. I had spots breaking out in clusters on different sides of my face and it was only when I went on antibiotics that I felt I started to get the breakouts under control. I also suffered really bad bloating in my lower stomach. Between the bloating and the acne my confidence was really affected and I ended up taking myself off the pill

Experience after taking

I felt much better within a few days of coming off of the pill. It took about a month for the bloating to subside completely but my skin stopped feeling oily and settled down quite significantly within about two weeks
